A Walter Lantz cartoon from the 1930s.
"This cartoon, based on the "Reg'lar Fellers" comic strip, was originally made for Ipana Toothpaste and was going to be released theatrically. It never got released to theaters, but was eventually bought by Castle Films and released exclusively to the home movie market (with the plugs for Ipana Toothpaste removed)."

You have to wonder what Walter Lantz and his crew were drinking when they thought up this cartoon. Thanks to the previous reviewer who mentioned the toothpaste company connection. Their review sums up this cartoon well. Four stars for the weirdness factor.

BEWARE THE WALLPAPER
A bit of a REALLY strange cartoon here. We first start with the most hyper "YES! WE'RE IN SCHOOL!" spots you ever did see. When that is over, a boy finds a dog, and takes him home. His father doesnt like that one bit, and tries to kick the dog out, when the dwarves in the wallpaper attack him (don't ask). Soon, they drag him into the wallpaper and have a trial for being cruel to the dog.
Um yeah. Pretty strange, the animation is not all that great, and the story just weird. Proceed at your own risk.

In the courtroom sequence, this cartoon draws from radio stars of the day. The prosecutor has the voice of Fred Allen, the policeman is Ed Wynn and the court reporter is Joe Penner.
The voice of the latter is supplied by Danny Webb (aka Dave Weber) who used the same vocal impression in Warners cartoons.
Billy Bletcher, who seems to have worked for every cartoon studio on the west coast in the 30s, is the mean old dad.
